Collectibles-General (Antiques)/Antiques



Resending pictures of my grandmother's bedroom suite per your request. I will be sending 3 of this request.

I dont remember what the question was as I do get lots of requests but lets assume you want to know age, wood and value??

These two pieces were manufactured in the 1915-1920s.  The veneers are mahogany cut and applied to show the patterns you see on the bed and dresser.  The case woods were usually birch, sweet gum, and/or tulip poplar at the time, even still used for good furniture, when real wood is still used.

These two pieces in a retail store would or should be priced at 650-700 each.  In a high end shop higher.  I am assuming the condition is good and everything is tight and smooth.

hope this is what you needed.

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.


I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
